If you’re having your second baby, consider using this clever theme, too!
6. Costumes and Cauldrons
Simmering cauldrons are a big hit this year, and they’re not just for witches!
They can easily go along with other fun Halloween costume ideas like the images above.
The effect is easier to create than you might think, using colored gender reveal smoke bombs. (You can find them on Amazon!)

8. Painted Pumpkins
This list of Halloween gender reveal ideas wouldn’t be complete without some ideas using pumpkins!

Or, you can use your carving skills to create an adorable reveal for your baby pumpkin like this one from @basicwifelife.
This is such a fun way to reveal a baby’s gender and if you have other children, they can help create the pumpkin carvings.
We love the way this gender reveal is staged with all the other tiny pumpkins on the shelf.
10. Smoking Pumpkins
Similar to the simmering cauldrons, above, you can also use a smoke bomb to create super cool pumpkin gender reveals.
Whether the smoke spills from the eyes and mouth of a jack-o-lantern or simply rises from the top of an oversized pumpkin, these ideas pack a poltergeist-ing punch!
- We love this perfectly eerie smoking jack-o-lantern gender reveal that was photographed by @michelleelisephoto.
- Wednesday Adams is having a huge pop culture moment right now, but she’s always a Halloween icon.
